Prufrock and Other Observations
by T.S. Eliot
recommended for: Beginning poetry readers/young idealists bored with dating
Rate this book
Clear rating
T.S. Eliot's poetry is absolutely beautiful. I wasn't really a poetry reader when I first picked this book up, but after reading The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock I wanted to find more beautiful, profound poetry like Eliot's to help me understand m ...more

Cathedrals by Raymond Carver
Cathedrals
by Raymond Carver
recommended for: Aspring writers/short story readers
Rate this book
Clear rating
Raymond Carver's short stories are accessible, personal portraits of everyday American life that I believe almost anyone can relate to. I think the fact that he didn't start writing until later on in his life makes him more of an American everyman th ...more

The Jesus I Never Knew
by Philip Yancey (Goodreads Author)
recommended for: Those seeking to understand the nature of Jesus Christ
Rate this book
Clear rating
When I first picked up this book, I was half way hoping to it be another sappy devotional "chicken-soup-for-the-fundamental-republican" soul so I could dismiss it in a flurry of pretensious spiritual hypocrisy. What I got instead was a revolutionary, ...more

The Visitation
by Frank E. Peretti
recommended for: Anyone seeking an addictive page turner as a new guilty pleasure
Rate this book
Clear rating
Yeah yeah, say what you want, but this book will always have a special place in my heart. Perretti will probably never win a pulitzer for his writing, but his masterful storytelling and convincing characters make his books worth reading, if not for e ...more

The Ugly American by William J. Lederer
The Ugly American
by William J. Lederer
recommended for: Those interested in intercultural communication/international relations
Rate this book
Clear rating
I read this book for an intercultural communication class. It really had an impact on my view of international relations, as it really shows the often fanatical nationalist attitudes so many Americans still hold today.
